From its inception in 1999, Career Gear earned a reputation for helping men who are low income enter the workforce by providing them business-appropriate clothing. The basic offering of a suit was simple, but also powerful. For those men who are improving their work skills and employability, a clean, appropriate suit is another important tool in finding a job. To date, over 35,000 men have been served through this job readiness program.
Career Gear has responded to the growing needs of men entering and re-entering the workforce. A suit cannot be the only solution, and, in fact, is just the beginning of the engagement with men who have opted to travel the road to self-sufficiency. Over the years, Career Gear has become a multidimensional nonprofit serving the needs of its participants.
